Hey all, as you know we have been killing it at my friends 1970’s ranch, and today is the day for another room reveal! Today is living room reveal day! If you recall we started with an awkward cave like space, with lots of wallpaper, paneling, and unnecessary walls. ( Make sure you check out all the demo day details here.)
Here is a small snapshot of the progression of the space. We tore down some walls, and made it feel a lot more open!
If you have been following along you know that we covered up all the wallpaper, and created an accent wall using faux shiplap. (Make sure you get the full tutorial here.)
Next up. Floors! By adding continuous wood laminate floors through out the entire living space it created a gorgeous open concept space. We used a wood laminate and this stuff rocks! (Make sure you check out all the details here. )
Alright without further ado, I give you the 70’s Ranch Family Room/Sitting room makeover!
Doesn’t it just make your heart happy!? I am not going to lie, the day we finished this area I just sat and admired it. I am so in love with this space!
The white shiplap served as a nice crisp clean canvas that served as a perfect backdrop for our custom DIY artwork. (You can check out the tutorial here.)
We wanted to add additional seating in front of the fireplace. So we created a small sitting area to break up the space between the kitchen and the living room.
Here is the view from the kitchen looking into the living room. P.S. If you haven’t seen the kitchen makeover yet, you are missing out my friend. You can get all the juicy details here.
Don’t you just love it ?! It seriously has me reconsidering my design choices in my own house!
Thanks so much for following along, and don’t forget to pin images to save them for later.
